94.7 Highveld Stereo’s Rude Awakening presenter Jeremy Mansfield has completed a six-month course of chemotherapy and his doctors are satisfied with the results.
Jeremy was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia earlier this year. He and his doctors chose to take an aggressive approach to the disease and he began chemo treatment immediately.
“I feel tired, which is normal following chemo treatment, but my head is in the same positive state it was when I was first diagnosed with the disease,” said Jeremy.
“I would like to thank everyone for the incredible support they’ve shown me and for all the encouragement.”
Jeremy will not be undergoing any follow-up treatment plan this year as he will be dedicating his time to Christmas Wish, an initiative that reaches out to those less fortunate by making their Christmas wishes come true. In January 2010, doctors will perform more tests to establish the way forward. – (Press release, October 2009)
